This Witch’s House Delights Our Private Tour Guests
Named for the family that occupied the house when it was moved from Culver City to Beverly Hills in 1934, the Spadena House is a delightful example of storybook architecture that can be found throughout Los Angeles and southern California. The structure was originally built in 1921 and served as a film production office before being moved to Beverly Hills and converted to a private residence. With the popularity of the recently released Hollywood film Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters this destination is even more popular for sightseeing on our private Beverly Hills tour than usual. This part of Beverly Hills has many great homes and amazing landscaping and art to see and photograph.
We tell our private luxury tour guests that just about everything they see on our custom tour around Los Angeles, Hollywood, Beverly Hills and the beach communities has been filmed at one time or another. Some sights are common and easily recognizable. Others require us to jog their memories a bit. The fire escape above, for instance. Just the side of another non-descript Hollywood apartment building but when we mention Julia Roberts and Richard Gere our guests get excited and pictures must be taken. You must know which film we are talking about where the last scene was shot at this location.
Sometimes we cannot show our private luxury tour guests visiting Hollywood the Chinese Theater courtyard with its celebrity hand and footprints because a studio has rented the facility for a big movie premiere. This day it was for Johnny Depp, Michelle Pfeiffer and Helena Bonham Carter in Tim Burton’s feature, DARK SHADOWS.
